I tend not to let people borrow my gear or fly it. A bloke last week asked me if he could fly and i just laughed.

I'll definitely let a good mate have a fly... after I get the thing fairly high and they've watched what I'm doing for a pack or two and understands how to fly the thing. Then I'll hand it over to them on 70% rates. I'll stay close and if it goes into a bit of a situation I'll take it back immediately.

Otherwise, the stock answer to 'Can I fly?' is 'Probably not!'

Well after 4-1/2 days cell #1 has droped big time.

Cell #1 3.240 #2 3.825

Even my POWERLAB 8 may have issues balancing this one.
I think I will go ahead a balance charge it and see how it does setting with a full charge.

I have ran this battery a few times in my Rustler and performance is very good as in more power than I can use. 8 to 10 minutes of hard running and Mamba Max motor is 140 to 150F or about as hot as I like to see it get.

Interesting to see the overcharged cell came off worse than the deep discharged one. Great follow-up on this Charles, and yeah no idea why people with balancing chargers dont use the balance function... why buy them otherwise? Hell, I've only got a cheap iMax B6 clone but it balances my cells and tells me what voltage they're at and how many mAh it put into the pack.
